We know: The beginning of the work week sucks. But if you take a quick look at the calendar, you'll see we're off to a pretty good week of art events, sporting events, dance parties, and more. Here are our must-see events from now to the weekend . . .
Tuesday, April 2: "Creature - Man - Nature" @ Mesa Contemporary Arts Carolyn Lavender, Monica Aissa Martinez, and Mary Shindell are no strangers to collaborating with one another. The three artists are all fixtures in the Phoenix arts community. Though their individual styles and media are very different, the imagery they've created for their latest three-woman show, "Creature - Man - Nature," creates a common bond.
According to the artists, Lavender will present her latest drawings of woodland creatures in constructed landscapes, Martinez will show her intricate portraits and studies of the human form, and Shindell will explore the textures and movements of plant forms through sculpture and mixed media. -- Claire Lawton
